Goes together very well with Italian pasta dishes with savoury meat sauces, escargot, parma ham, smoked sausages or tartar, bistecca fiorentina, wild boar, lamb provençale, dove, pheasant, or a flavourful stuffed duck.
The densely coloured, but also brilliant red wine has a subtle yet complex nose with hints of black cherries, coffee beans, cocoa powder, combined with spicy notes of pepper, laurel and sage. Its taste is harmonious, elegant and complex, with soft, rounded, silky tannin and a long finish. The slightly piquant and chocolaty taste, the scent of berries and figs, and the deliciously integrated sweetness of the fruits are reminiscent of great Bordeaux.
